So anyway to relax I assembled the motor on the '72.
I got carried away using plug wire from Detail Master; my only comment would be that the instructions tell you to use a #80 drill but what you need is the #78 which is the required 0.016". (The #80 is 0.0135"). This is a good thing because I broke my #80 bit off in the head. Finally I have a stock of #78 bits since it is the same as 0.40 mm (to within 0.0025", anyway), which is much in demand on the 908.
All looking good, time for some decongestant and bed.
